These are awsome! I have never seen a tut for them. I saw pants like this years ago at a pagan festaval.

They on ly difference was they added ties at the bottom so they were kept more secure and a touch more modest.

I might have to try these later.

     They are so cool !! Might even tempt ME to do some sewing.  But.......mmmmm.... I would have to shave the hairy legs and I don't know how they would like that after a million years in hibernation.

Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

These do look super comfy!  My biggest problem with pants is getting the angle and depth of the crotch seam right.... These might help with that, as I won't have to fit any other parts together....

I would add ties down the legs and at the ankles, if I expose too much skin I burst into flames....  Although yours look modest enuff, if I was wearing them over a swimsuit, I wouldn't mind, so for resort wear, this RAWKS!!!

I just saw these pants and I want to make myself some for this years Bonnaroo but I have a question about the "crotch" measurement......... how do you know how much space to give when you make the one "half-circle" stitch part? like, where the tut says "stitch where red line is", well how do I measure myself to make sure I got enough room going on there for my naughty bits and rather round rear? I'm confused and I hope I haven't confused everyone else but I want these pants and want to make sure they come up high enough in the front and back when I'm done.......BTW - I don't sew, can ya' tell?!?!?!?!?

yay!  bonnaroo!  Last year i made myself another pair of these pants, but they were red and white vertical stripes.  for the white stripes show!  yeah!  I don't know if I ever posted a picture  Tongue

Anyway, to answer your question, just get out your measuring tape and measure the crotch of some pants you already have, or go right to the source and measure your crotch!  just put the tape between your legs and determine how high you'd like your pants to go.  keep in mind you probably don't want them all jacked up in your cooch, so make sure you give yourself some breathing room!  and room to hem too..  so, i guess measure yourself and add..  probably about 4 inches.  better to add too much then too little, though!  easier to fix that way  Grin

man, i hope that made sense.  if not, just tell me and I'll try harder  Cheesy

oh, and I almost forgot, when you wear them at bonnaroo, tie the back tie first and the the front.  that way you can just untie the front tie and hold them in front of yourself to  pee in the porta potty.  if you tie them the other way you'll have to take them all the way off to pee!!  not good!!

*eenodol* - WORD! thanks so much for the tutoring on "naughty bits" measurements!!!!! That really cleared it up for me and I was thinking about that whole leaving extra room thing cause last thing i want at Bonnaroo is to go to cop a squat on the ground and find I got on some way to tight in the you know where pants! Comfort is key with me!!!! also I was thinking to make the panels a bit "wide" so they would wrap further around, hence, overlapping more and providing better coverage while still being rockin' awsome and flowing. So now I have another question....... since i dont sew, i don't know about material...... does it come in "WIDE and LONG"? cause I want ankle length pants that will wrap around me decently too...... I wear about an 18/20 RTW and i'm 5'7" / 5'8" so I'm not a really "round" 18/20 but more like a tall thick amazon 18/20..... know what i mean? So what do I look for when I go to get material? Are there measurments on the bolts of fabric? and what do they mean? I need LONG and WIDE, so what's the best way to get that?
Thanks..... sorry bout all the ques, but i'm a sewing dummy!
